I can now answer my own question. I purchased a Solo CDP LG on Tuesday. Took it to the range yesterday. Shot several types of 124 grain ammo for about 100 rounds, and the gun performed perfectly. Shot where I aimed and has a great feel and I love the 1911 ergonomics. The Laser is bright, easy to engage, and I only had to move it a little to the left to get it zeroed. The KimproII finish appears to be anodized on and seems very durable. I have seen no signs of holster wear as yet. If it continues to perform for another 100 rounds it will be my primary carry gun. For now at least. The only problem I have with the pistol is the recoil spring is so strong it is difficult to manipulate, but doable. I think it loosened up some after shooting it and hope it will continue.
